    I'm looking to put new leaf springs on my 78 nova. I could go with stock or add a little height to give it the little more aggressive look, which I want. Anybody done this and how much height should I add...1 inch 2 inch...?? More?? I dont want it to look ridiculous either. If you got pics...

    Hi all, I am looking at refreshing the suspension on my 1970 Nova. As with everyone id like to keep things on a tight budget but still do it right. So i am looking for recommendations of parts i missed or usually shouldn't bother replacing. Here is the list of parts i am looking at replacing...

    Hey all! After swapping a SBC 383 stroker into my 4-door '74 Olds Omega, I finally got around to changing the front springs to the correct-for-V8 Nova rate (along with a set of Bilsteins). The car sits a little high in the front, which is fine, as these new springs have zero miles on them and...

    Would someone or several people post some pictures of original 68 leaf springs? It seems to me I saw that they have some pressed indentations on them and special clamps. Are they available anywhere? Thanks Jim

    Hey Guys, I own a 64 Nova SS. I have CPP HD Stock Height Springs on the Front and Monroe Sensatrack shocks. It bottoms out frequently and leans a lot in the corners. I like a stiff ride, I was really surprised that the HD springs were not stiffer. Should I change my shocks and go with some race...

    I'm having a hard time locating info on what springs to look for for my car. I'd like something pretty stock. I'd like to find something on ebay. I'm looking at the moog 6080 right now, but, i'm just wanting to make sure that they're correct. I'm wanting a nice smooth ride. Also, the shocks...
